Come during a concert at the island's open-air theater, see an outdoor movie, or eat dinner under the stars. Hang out at one of the many restaurant or cafes on the island, go for a run, have a picnic in a landscaped garden, relax at an outdoor pool, or play in the sun at Palatinus water park.

  • Nice place to walk around and see some ruins. It's feasible for an able bodied person to walk from one tip to the other.  more »

  • It's a lovely little island with so much that goes on, on it and is ready all year round. It's lovely to have a countryside experience in the middle of a city.  more »
